Daniel Craig Says Enya Song Was Ideal For 'Dragon Tattoo' Torture Scene

December 31st, 2011 12:30pm EST
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Daniel Craig came up with the idea for the killer in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" to listen to Enya as he tortured his character in the film after director David Fincher told him he was looking for the perfect tune to "underscore the banality of evil."

The British actor, who plays journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the dark thriller, suggested the ideal track would be Enya's 1988 hit "Orinoco Flow" and played it to Fincher on his iPod.

The moviemaker recalls, "We knew that we needed a little moment of levity... the villain should walk over and turn on music, because he... doesn't like to...

Celebrity Horoscope: Taurus

April 21st, 2008 8:00am EDT
Renee Zellweger
People who inhabit the Taurus sign (April 20-May 20) have a great work ethic and are reliable, honest, and determined. They don't take any unnecessary risks and are not easily distracted. In other words, they're taskmasters.

Take Cher, for example. She's been working since she was 17 - that's 45 years in the business and one heck of a work ethic. Although she "officially retired" following her 2005 farewell tour, she is contracted to perform over 200 shows over the next three years.

Those born under the bull sign also like to live comfortably. That's not a difficult thi...

A native of Santa Barbara, California, Walsh was only a toddler when her parents divorced. She was raised by her mother and step-father, who encouraged her creative dev...

Michael Jackson Booed Off Stage, Chris Brown Perfroms Thriller At World Music Awards

November 16th, 2006 9:35am EST
Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson was booed off stage following his pop comeback at the World Music Awards last night. The eccentric singer, who seemed to be suffering from stage fright, struggled to hit the high notes and looked uncomfortable throughout his performance of We Are The World.

The singer only delivered a handful of lines before being booed off stage. Jackson was accompanied by a children's gospel choir who sang most of the song before the 48-year-old even made it on stage.

When he did eventually appear, his loyal fans - some of whom had paid $950 to see him for the first time in the U...
